The Velvet dream
You want something that is luxuriously smooth, soft to the touch and elegant? The answer is velvet! Velvet is a statement just waiting to happen and will get you noticed whether you’re bound for a full-on formal affair or something a little more low-key.
Velvet items comes in a lot of shapes, but I opted for the velvet blazer for the formal aesthetic look, and I picked it in one of my favorite colors, green. It’s always hard to find the perfect button-down shirt for a velvet blazer, because you don’t want a color that challenge the blazer as the focal point and with this black and white button-down, I think I found the perfect balance. I finished the look with a pair of slim-cut trousers in black and black monks.
I really like this outfit, mainly because of the velvet dream. Velvet just has that rare ability to just automatically elevate a look into the upper echelon of elegance, the only other thing that can compare to velvet when it comes to elegance and smoothness in my opinion, is the color white. Both velvet and dressing whites, have in common that it can be extremely difficult to style them and not look like you trying too hard or just getting it horribly wrong, so when it comes to velvet, starting with something smaller such as accessories to get a feel for it, can be a good start.
